What web browser do you use?

Recommended Posts

there are threads for Which AV?, Which Firewall?, can I suggest a Which browser?

 

(not sure if the voting structure is something only a Mod can do)

I think such a thread already exists, but in case I'm wrong I'd like to submit the first vote: Google Chrome

Mostly firefox flavors as my main browser, though I keep chrome (canary and beta) on the machine and use them often too.

Is Chrome Canary the one you send to an unknown site to test the atmosphere for malware ? :)

I think the name is meant to imply something of the sort- in that it's an alpha build and is the 'canary in the coal mine' for bugs for the beta, perhaps?

I use Opera on my mobile. Tried Firefox mobile (with ABP etc), but it seems to crash quite often..

I tried firefox for mobile on an older version, didn't much care for it (it was not yet really "optimized" for mobile)

 

I use Chrome on my tablet and Dolphin on my phone.

If anything happens to the canary do they then switch to humans. :lol:

Firefox + adblock plus + noscript is a good combination for improved surfing security.

+ Ghostery ;)

I'm currently using chrome on my computers, tablet, and Iphone. Love the way it syncs bookmarks, and tabs. I can be reading on my computer and pick it up exactly where I left off on my tablet or phone. I use safari sometimes on my phone because it has a cool "reader mode" on some sites which make it easier to read text(plus its way faster than chrome on iPhone.)

 

I used to worry about the privacy concerns of functions such as this. Now I choose convenience instead. :unsure:

Terra isn't available on phones. I might be getting an iPad mini when they are announced next week. If I do, I'll give it a shot. I love my nexus 7, but I'm a teacher(still feels good not to say student anymore!) and there a lot more educational apps on iOS.

That seems strange to me, I thought iOS was universal (ie, apps "just work" to use apple's words)

I think there are tablet apps and phone apps. I think it's relatively easy for developers to use the same code on both but they are different apps. This is why android tablets are often criticized for using "stretched phone apps" but iPads aren't. Apple requires developers to create optimized apps for both.

 

It doesn't come up on the app store on my phone but it came up in itunes on my computer.

Really? My iPad has some apps that are literally the phone app and there's a 2x button that just stretches it :/

I don't have an ipad so I wasn't aware of that. I just know a lot of the criticisms I read about android tablets are that there aren't, "tablet apps" like the iPad. I guess only major apps like facebook and twitter have both types of apps.

Ew, native facebook and twitter apps. D: The one on Android is awful, the iOS one isn't much better.

The native Facebook app on Android has been slowly improving. Twitter is still crashy and irritating though... sadly I can't find anything better to replace it.
